Decorators ‘must use warm colours this season’

People who employ decorators in Portsmouth have been advised to request they use cosy and warm colours at this time of year.

Karen Haller, an interior designer and colour expert, has spoken of the importance of creating the right type of environment.

She said that during the winter it is essential to have a home that is snug and in no way cold or bleak.

“Colours – along with lighting and textures – can be used to create this. Colour schemes to think about are those that give the feeling of warmth, such as reds, oranges and yellows,” Ms Haller explained.

She went on to suggest that adding supporting neutrals – such as white and brown – to these shades will work a treat.

Susan Llewellyn, founder of the Susan Llewellyn Academy of Interior Design and Susan Llewellyn Associates, recently suggested that many people like to call in decorators before Christmas to give their homes a seasonal boost.
